Seven Minutes is a series of interviews with top wrestling coaches and athletes. Most of the question-and-answer sessions last roughly seven minutes. Hence the name. WWE superstar Chad Gable was a 2012 Greco-Roman Olympian who trained at Northern Michigan with the USOEC program.
GG18: Ready, Willing and Gable to talk wrestling – Minnesota native Chas Betts on life as the WWE’s Chad Gable
In 2012, Chas Betts represented the United States on the Greco-Roman Olympic Team in London. Four years later, Betts, now known professionally as WWE Superstar Chad Gable, is one of the rising stars in the world of professional wrestling.
The Albertville, Minn., native was a Greco-Roman specialist, foregoing the traditional college wrestling route to train strictly in Greco at Northern Michigan under Ivan Ivanov at the U.S. Olympic Education Center. From there, it was a World Team in 2009, an Olympic Team in 2012 and now a career tag-teaming with another former amateur wrestler, Jason Jordan (known to college fans as Indiana alum Nathan Everhart).
